However, when one side is committed to the destruction of the other, I don't know how peace can be achieved by negotiation.
How can you sit down at a bargaining table and negotiate the point:
Hezzbolah: "We want the destrution of Israel"
Israel: "We want to exist"
Hezzbolah: "Well, okay then, we want to only destroy 90% of Israel"
Israel: "Well that is a little unreasonable, what say we consent to letting you destroy 20% of us"
Hezzbolah: "That is completely unacceptable, we cannot accept anything less than the destruction of 75% of Israel. AND we must destroy the part we can drive into the sea"
Israel: "Hold up there, we cannot live with 75% destruction. I think, best guess, on this go around we could consent to 25% destruction. "
UN Negotiator: 'We have the basis for an agreement. We will allow Hezzbolah to destroy 25% of Israel now, and we will create a special UN mission to determine the timetable for the destruction of the other 50%, leaving Israel with 25% by 2020."
All agree and shake hands.
